Madii & Dyl Childrens Latex Pillow Review & Giveaway (giveaway now closed).

July 24, 2011 · 52 comments

 A few weeks ago I was asked if my littlest pink person (3yo) would like to trial the Madii & Dyl pillow range.  As the little pink’s relationship with her old pillow was a little ‘on the rocks’ it seemed like this might be a good idea.   In an effort to be like her big sisters she desperately wants to have a pillow,  but  doesn’t seem at all interested in using it once she gets into bed.   As soon as the covers go on she grabs teddy and snuggles down far enough to rest her head on the mattress – thus totally avoiding her pillow.

~Our Review~

We pickup our trial pillow at a recent Brand Meet Blog meeting and brought it home for its  ‘sleep drive’.  The first things we noticed about the Madii & Dyl pillow  when we got it home  was its size.  Much smaller than a regular adult pillow it did looked a little unusual on the bed.  Little pink was undeterred by this and immediately climbed up on her bed to rest her head.   Her words “my pillow Mummy – like it“.   She then helped  Teddy, Yellow Teddy, Uppsy-Daisy and  Mr Potato Head to conduct their own sleep tests, and it seems they all agreed it would be okay for the new pillow to stay.   But the real test would be if she’d actually use it come bed time.    That night little pink climbed up into bed, put her head on her pillow and there it  stayed and has done every night since.  Little pink is now a happy pillow user.

The Madii & Dyl pillows come in three sizes suitable for newborns (Sooki babe $39 – especially for day time head support), toddlers  (Teenii Tot  $49 – for 18 months plus) and  young children  (Mini Me $59 – 4 plus years).  We trialed the  Mini Me which has  a flip wave design, meaning the pillow can be flipped over for added comfort as your child grows.   For more information about the Madii & Dyl range and the age/size specifications please check out their website.

Things we love about the Madii & Dyl Pillow ~

  • The smaller size seems much better suited to little necks and heads.
  • The promotional information states that it’s “naturally resistant to dust mites, mildew and bacteria and provides maximum air flow, which prevents moisture and heat build-up”  Great for allergy sufferers or heavy sweaters.
  • The pillow can be washed (by hand or machine) without losing its softness or shape. We haven’t done this yet  but I’m happy to know we can, because this pillow is sure to have a rough life now that it belongs to a three year old.  Sickness, sweat, tears – it’ll  get the lot!
  • The pillow has  a 5 year plus guarantee.
  • The littlest pink loves it and still refers to it as her ‘special pillow’ after using it for over four weeks.
  • It was designed by a mother of two who was struggling to find a suitable option for her own children

Room for improvement with the Madii & Dyl Pillow~

  • Hard to find a pillow slip to fit – due to its smaller size.  Might have to make some myself.
  • The look of the smaller sized pillow on the bed might take a little getting used to.  But on the plus side this leaves a  good amount of room for the necessary collection of special toys kids take to bed.  Teddy and Mr Potato Head are very pleased!

I am following you in RSS feeds. What a wonderful giveaway. Finding the right pillow for either of my DD has been hard. They are both just using existing pillows that we already had as I wasn’t sure what to get them! These pillows sound wonderful! I’d love to trial a Teenii Tot! It might be just the thing to keep my littlest daughter in her bed all night! Yes wishful thinking I know!


34 claire evans July 25, 2011 at 1:19 pm

mini me, oh yes please,. my neck is always stiff in the morning after my kiddies pinch my pillow for their own. mini me, for the mini me that needs to sleep her her bug bed with her beautiful pillow for all her mini needs


35 Donna July 25, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Following on My Yahoo! We’d love to try out the Mini Me for little miss. I’m sure her eyes would light up to see a pillow just for her.

I’d love the Mini Me from Princess Ella. Her pillow presently is far too high for her – although, she hasn’t complained. I can imagine she’d get a much better sleep with a better pillow!
